    I put up the signal asking for authentication help on versace and chanel ties. Scroll back look for the spoo-signal.

    People hatin' on darkmatter7, but it's just jealousy. Then he decided gf and school was more important anyway so he's lying low. Fake Frenchy is finding Frenchy like stuff. I started a spreadsheet on eBay sellers who are frequent fliers here so we can buy from our peeps when we feel like it.

    Capnwes has become a cobbler/artisan.

    Baseball feuds are about to start.

    Lots of people pillaged a lot of thrift stores. You'll get filled in by the others on the rest. Can you tell I am a reporter by day?

    Andro gave me the shout out. But now we all have this to contend with:
    Gentlemen, every man has his limits. I wouldn't expect you to know this, but I come from a broken home; a house divided. We are a Red Sox/Yankees household, raising our children, God Willing, as Cubs fans. We got married in 2004, the year of the broken curse and the bloody sock and all that nonsense. And our first child was born in 2007. Also, we're a Giants/Patriots household too. I come here for a brief respite and escape from the woes of the world, so there's just one thing I can't stomach: A Yankee/Red Sox THREAD DOWN!

    I sure do wish the thrift gods would stop taunting me with Sir Pendleton shirts that aren't quite right... Found three today: one was shrunk too short, one was a hideous color and had no tag, and one was a beautiful one with 2 foot collars (I'm thinking late 70s) but it had a hole in the sleeve.

    okay, in need of some education here. some of you are able to tell a lot based on a version of a label (older or current), will you be kind enough to clue me in?

    You, sir, are BANNED FROM THE FORUM. Grendel, help me out, here.


    In all seriousness, I just got back from the first-ever Braves vs. the future Braves allstars exhibition game. Let's just say that the Braves, um, looked rather poor, but Dan Uggla hit a moonshot, so that was cool.

    Burberry: #1 recent, #2 old (I think ~5-10+ years old).
